The Launch of the Undergraduate Disability Research Forum

We’re excited to annouance that tomorrow will see the launch of Sheffield Hallam’s Undergraduate Disability Reseach Forum (UG-DRF). As a sister project running alongside the DRF, UG-DRF will provide a space for undergraduates involved in and/or interested in Disability Research to share, discuss and receive feedback on their own disability research.

Rebecca Mallett and Jenny Slater, along with third year Education and Disability Studies students, Michelle Darby and Lucia Coello-Lage, will chair the first meeting on Tuesday 4th December 2012 which will involve third year Education Studies Students sharing their disability-focused dissertation research ideas, ‘speed dating’ style!

The second UG-DRF event will be with a DRF session on December 18th 2012 where Michelle and Lucia will talk about their own research. This seminar will also welcome Katherine Runwick-Cole to speak on (Neuro)diversity: Pros and cons for (neoliberal) social policy. For more on this session click here.

Watch this space for more on the UG-DRF.

There are still slots available in to present in 2013, so if you, or anybody you know, would like to present at a DRF seminar please do get in touch.  Alternatively, let us know if there is an issue/article/book on which you’d like to facilitate discussion.  Please email Jenny Slater: j.slater@shu.ac.uk
